ConTEXT III

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The Foundry Art Centre is seeking submissions for “ConTEXT III,” an all media exhibition focusing on the written word’s role in the visual arts. The power of words cannot be overstated. Contemporary society is saturated with media and this exhibition showcases how intertwined the literary and visual arts are. We must ask ourselves how the words we read, and how we read them, impacts our understanding of the world. We ask artists ‘What happens when the visual arts and literary arts are fused?’

 

Awards: 

Best in Show awarded a “Going Solo” Exhibition 

Two Juror’s Choice Awards -  $150 cash prize each

 

Eligibility: 

Open to all artists, 18 years and older, world-wide, both amateur and professional. This includes alternative and traditional artwork.

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The A3 Press is looking for new chapbook submissions. Deadline is 10 January, 2020.

The A3 Press is a place for work that might struggle to find a traditional home, work that's lyrical and intense, a bit weird, perhaps, hybrid, experimental. We like work that is urgent, that says something about what it's like to be alive at this point in history. 

Do you have a series of poems or short stories, or a long story that can be spread out over several pages? Maybe a short play in 12 parts or scenes, or even 12 very short plays? Do you have a combination of drawings and short stories? Poems and photographs? Maybe 12 drawings or photographs without text that would fit into our A3 map-fold format?

We publish approximately ten titles a year. Email us directly with any questions, or contact us via Twitter.

Prizes: 

Selected titles receive £200 (approx $250) and 10 copies of their chapbook.
